I'm running XP Pro Sp3.

Just today I restarted my pc for the heck of it and it would not boot back into Windows. Luckily Im running
a dual boot on dual hard drives so that's how I got onto here. I was going to use my Xp disc to run a system
recovery and it is not an option at any time for me to use recovery. The disc boots up ask if i need to intall any 3rd party drivers and then asks me if i want to push F2 for Advanced Recovery Console. The it goes onto where I can select my hard drive for install. But Windows recovery or to repair an installation is not an option anywhere!!!!!
Help!!!

One more thing. I don't think its the Hard Drive because I can access my data from the other hard drive. I'm almost sure its a screwed up boot file or something, but I don't know how to go about fixing those files without at least being able to boot into Safe Mode on that installation of Xp.
